Round goes the Teal

Captured this shot shortly after sunset. ISO was cranked up to 3200, which is really high for the 7D, but I had to try to get a shot regardless, as still, reflective water is extremely rare in Colorado (there is always some kind of breeze). This little teal was just doing his evening rounds....round, and round, and round he went around the little tiny pond. ;P

baby Great Horned Owl.... spring time is great

Yes it is. Especially before the trees fully leave and hide things.

Great - there is one baby in the nest I am watching.  The parents of the babies in your pic will be busier trying to keep all 3 fed and happy !

More pelicans. The pelican in the third picture has a scar. I'm not sure but the day before I took the picture there were some fishermen casting off the shore at the place the pelicans like to feed. One of the fishermen snagged a pelican on his lure. I'm thinking this might be the pelican. The fishermen were fishing in a no fishing zone and showed no regard for the pelicans. They just kept casting even though they were casting over the heads of the birds. The likelihood of snagging one of the birds was pretty high. Yahoos

Question for anyone who has an opinion: I have been thinking of purchasing the Tamron 150-600 since I do like to do a lot of wildlife photography. I have been using a Canon 300mm IS f/4L with a Canon Extender EF 1.4x III on both a 7D (primarily) and a 5D Mark II. I'm happy with the results but would like a little more reach. I understand there will be some reduction in image quality but do you think (or know) that adding the 2x extender would give comparable image quality to the Tamron at 600mm? The zoom feature of the Tamron is an advantage but isn't especially important to me.
